UofL’s online learning programs have a long history of providing access to college degrees in a format that works best for the student’s success. For more than a decade, that focus has consistently placed UofL among the “Best Online Programs” by U.S. News & World Report

This year, two programs cracked the top 20 nationally. UofL’s online bachelor’s in business and bachelor’s in psychology rank came in at #17 and #11, respectively.

Along with business and psychology, the university’s fully online programs were acknowledged among some of the top education opportunities for online students in 2024 across the following categories:

  • Best Online Bachelor’s
  • Online Graduate Criminal Justice
  • Online Graduate Education
  • Online Graduate Engineering
  • Online Graduate Technology

UofL also is ranked among the Best Online Programs for Veterans across many of the same categories.

“Online learning, especially in a post-pandemic society, remains an extremely important area of growth and development for the university,” said Kelvin Thompson, vice provost for online strategy and teaching innovation. “Today’s students often navigate the complexities of careers, families and myriad priorities while pursuing their education. We continually strive to offer programs that maintain the esteemed quality associated with UofL while evolving to meet the complex needs of contemporary learners. Recognition from sources such as U.S. News & World Report encourages dialogue about how we at UofL can keep moving forward in meeting the diverse needs of our students.”

In pursuit of extending education opportunities to the Greater Louisville-area and beyond, UofL launched seven new online programs in 2024 including four new public health graduate certificates, an engineering graduate certificate in Six Sigma and a master’s in business analytics. The university currently offers over 70 programs completely online.

Online programs are targeted toward the non-traditional students, including adult learners, working professionals, military and degree completer students – as well as anyone looking to earn a college credential through flexible, high-quality online education.
